OSHA would like a word with you about your sandals

"Yes hi. Where can we get a pair?"

Nah he’s good. Steel toed socks.


LeTruantMongoose

Hey, at least he’s wearing hearing protection.


Lucktar

When you're dealing with something that heavy, no footwear is really going to provide any meaningful protection. In many work environments, steel-toe boots are actively discouraged, because the steel can be folded over and actually amputate the toes, rather than having them merely be crushed.

I'd like to see how he got those spikes started.


Firefluffer

I’ve worked with feathers and wedges. You drill the hole first using a bit with a two to four carbide pieces. One person holds the bit and the other person hits it with a hammer, then you turn it a quarter turn between every strike. In sandstone it goes quick, with granite it takes forever. After you have a hole, you place two feathers, which are half round on the outside and flat on the inside and a wedge that fits in the middle. As you strike the wedge, it opens up and begins to stress the rock. With several in the same line, it creates a crack and fractures along the crack. The harder the rock, the deeper the holes you need to drill and the longer the feathers you need. This looks like sandstone, so you don’t need to go that deep.

This guy splitting giant boulders with basic tools, meanwhile I strained my back making the bed this morning


beluuuuuuga

Fuck corner beds so very much.


Ok_Equivalent_4296

I heard on ancient aliens that there just isn’t a way to cut rock that straight and perfect without modern tools.


HauschkasFoot

On the scale of the universe’s history hammers are an incredibly modern tool


PlagueDuck

Try doing that with copper tools


cveleee

Rocks that ancient buildings are made from are percisely cut to fit one another with geometric angles. This rock split in an uneven line. You can cut rocks like this, but it would take a LONG time to make a building out of it and that is without putting them on top of eachother

If my leg was under the falling bolder, would it be sqooshed and squished, severed even?


StoneyBolonied

I reckon you'd get a bruise and maybe a few cuts, that's a best case scenario


[deleted]

All that while wearing sandals. That's a real fucking man right there!


YourAverageGod

Steel toed sandals


damn_thats

Fun fact: on the original post a few weeks back, the top comment was exactly the same thing.


[deleted]

Makes sense, it was the first thing I noticed.


mykneeshrinks

Well it does stand out as a pretty ~~curious~~ fucking stupid thing.


SixToesLeftFoot

You spelled years incorrectly


yParticle

And if that boulder fell on his foot it wouldn't matter if they were steel-toed.


mykneeshrinks

You underestimate the power of steel. I could kick that bolder over the football field with steel toed boots.


[deleted]

For real


Kozlow

Real fucking stupid.


[deleted]

I doubt he had the luxury of thinking about how safe his toes would be. Look what he is doing, he is literally harvesting stone with a sledgehammer.


Kozlow

Harvesting? Dude is wearing designer jeans. He’s just dumb.


mykneeshrinks

Every country has designer clothes. Not all countries have functional or even heavy duty clothes. Most countries don't give a shit about workers' safety at all.


damniticant

Guys can someone take OSHA to the hospital? I think it had a heart attack.

I wish I knew something hardcore and outdoorsy like this.

Is this what ancient egyptians did to build the pyramids?

After seeing what Francis can do, let's get this man training MMA!


xluisex

Respect, that seems like a tough job


HelenEk7

What fascinates me the most about this photo is that he is doing the job in sandals.


NickleNaps

I find it much more fascinating that the photo plays video.


DimitriTooProBro

Well, a video is just a group of photos in a rush to an unknown destination.


markymark39

Ah yes, feathers and wedges technique

*Egypt didn't have the tech to build the pyramids* This guy with some sticks and a hammer

Where’s history channel when you need them.


Triairius

It looks so smooth and I want to touch it, but I bet there’s all sorts of rock dust all over it and it has that subtle but horrendous texture of unglazed fired ceramic.

What a stud


Zetaclad

That stone looks smooth ....really want to feel it.... no homo

For some reason this is just an image for me, Ive noticed this on quite a few posts.

Cool video, but it's the 1,246th time I've seen it on reddit. Sorry bud that's a down vote from me.

Why is that smooth sandstone so satisfying to watch
